Do you have a reference system to compare and contrast?
If so you can check each file involved by moving a copy
from the problem box to the reference box and checking.

Also try "strace -f -o /tmp/strace-rpm rpm -Uvh package.rpm"

In /tmp/strace-rpm you will see all the libs that it works with.  and
when it breaks.  Perhaps a library link is broken.  Also you can run
in the debugger... gdb...

Anyhow compare and contrast with a healthy box,  it may be obvious
what is wrong when you do.
